How Much Money Will it Take to Stop Up Baltimore

Baltimore to get $20M in grants to stop sewer overflows
Baltimore will get more than $20 million in grants to help prevent sanitary sewer overflows.

Maryland's Board of Public Works approved the Bay Restoration Fund grants on Wednesday.

The Maryland Department of the Environment said in a news release that the grants will help Baltimore improve the existing sanitary sewer infrastructure in the Patapsco and Herring Run sewersheds.
But would the state spend that much on agriculture, which the EPA has deemed a greater threat to the Bay? Apparently not; the $20 million was most of the $22 million the state spent on funding for clean water this cycle.

Meanwhile Monday's downpours send nearly 40,000 gallons of rainwater and sewage into Jones Falls
